It has been my privilege and pleasure to serve the children of Colquitt County for what will be 35 years when I close my office on Aug. 30, 2019. It seems bittersweet to be closing at the same time as the medical school is opening, but I won’t be retiring entirely and you’ll still see me around town. I will continue to see newborns and hospitalized children an average of one week per month while teaching our Georgia South residents as they rotate through inpatient pediatrics.
Colquitt County is blessed with another pediatrician, Dr. Bo Edwards, who will be joined in January by Dr. Debra Selby, as well as with many competent and compassionate Family Medicine physicians.
My office will be open Sept. 2-16 for parents to pick up or request to transfer of records to these physicians or others of their choosing. Please be patient with us during this time. After Sept. 17, records may be obtained through the hospital by calling Secure Records Solutions at 229-226-0414. My office will be open for receiving payment for outstanding bills through the third or fourth week of September, and I will keep my mailbox at the office as long as possible, but payments may also be sent to me in care of Colquitt Regional Medical Center at 1830 South Main St. just south of the gas station at the corner of Lower Meigs Road – or take them by there.
Those interested in furniture, decorations, or office supplies from my office, let me know by mid-September.
My thanks to all the nurses, residents, and med students and others – too many to list – for their help (especially with computer order entry)
Finally I would like to thank my colleagues on the medical staff of Colquitt Regional Medical Center, including those who have passed on and those internists who now only see patients in their offices, who for many years have practiced Hippocratic medicine by always striving to cure or comfort and never to intentionally kill, before or after birth, by maintaining high scientific standards and freely passing this knowledge on to future generations of physicians. Trusting in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior they have given glory to God.
